On Southend Pier you can fish from either the Pier Stem or Pier Head and catch a variety of species including mackerel, plaice or flounder.

Day fishing from the Pier is available to anyone, and tickets can be purchased on the day. Simply bring along your rod and bait and enjoy the views from the end of the Pier! There is an angling shop directly opposite the Pier entrance to purchase bait and give advice on the species seen throughout the year. Children (ages 3 to 16) must be accompanied by an adult when fishing on Southend Pier.


Season tickets are available for fishing online and at the Pier entrance. Night or combined day and night passes are only available to current members of a recognised fishing club (having been a member for at least 6 months prior to application). 


For more information speak to one of our team members.
